HOTEL REVIEW: Sensimar Ibiza Beach Resort

While I am slowly starting to embrace the cooler season, I wanted to bring back Summer one last time and tell you a little more about the Sensimar Ibiza Beach Resort where Kathi and I stayed during our trip to Ibiza. Personally, I rely on fellow bloggers’ reviews, snapshots I see on Instagram and recommendations from friends when it comes to choosing accommondation for foreign places and travels. Of course, all the hotels hire professional photographer to take amazing pictures of their rooms, but I am always curious to know what it really looks like! Well, that’s what reviews are for, right?

HOTEL REVIEW: W New York – Downtown

Traveling is one of my biggest passions, and I will always be the first to hop on a plane when the opportunity arises. Especially if said opportunity includes New York during fashion week. The trip was short but amazing, super busy but so inspiring. At times, I found myself literally running through the streets, frantically looking for a taxi or metro station in order to make my next appointment, so you can only imagine how happy I was to come home to a relaxing and welcoming place after a long day out and about. I had been to NYC twice before and had stayed in the Upper Eastside and around Times Square on Madison Ave. – this time around, however, I had the chance to explore a whole new area while staying at the W New York – Downtown.

HOTEL REVIEW: Hotel Indigo Alexanderplatz

I am not sure what your plans for the weekend are, but I am headed home to spend a few days with my family. Summer is in full force and I can’t wait for BBQs with family & friends, a dip in the lake and to catch up on my favorite magazines. Just in time for a little get-away, I still have a hotel review to share with you. For Berlin Fashion Week, last week, I spent 4 nights in the German city. Every time I visit Berlin, I catch myself falling for the city more and more – mostly for their amazing restaurant and food options. Berlin is huge and there are so many corners yet to be discovered, but for now, I have found Mitte to be my favorite area – which is also where the Hotel Indigo Alexanderplatz is located.

It is not always easy finding a good hotel in a foreign city, especially during fashion week. Prices are higher than usual and all of the good places are fully booked. We got lucky and ended up at a hotel with fair prices, a stylish interior and a location that is hard to beat.

HOTEL REVIEW: Falkensteiner Resort & Spa Iadera

To finish of my travel diary from Croatia, I wanted to share a detailed hotel review of our stay at the beautiful Falkensteiner Resort & Spa Iadera with you guys. Personally, I really love all of the Falkensteiner hotels that I’ve been to so far (Velden, Schladming & Stegersbach), so it was no surprise that we instantly felt very at home in Zadar as well. We had a spacious junior suite with an incredible ocean view and breakfast was also included. The resort is located about 5.5 hrs by car from Vienna and only a few kilometers away from the Croatian town of Zadar.
